    Does every bank require analysts to shave daily?

    I have seen CEOs sporting beards, but well, they are CEOs.
    It's not that I'm too lazy to shave in the mornings; I'm asking because I get razor bumps when I shave... the more often the worse.

    I don't think you need to shave every day, assuming you don't get a ridiculous 5 o'clock shadow. Just look neat and that's all that matters. Obviously it matters more if you are client-facing. I think you should be clean shaven all the time if you are meeting clients.

    I have met a few guys with pretty hefty beards, but they were pretty senior traders...

    As said above, it probably depends heavily on how client-facing your role is.
    If you are Italian maybe you can get away with a moustache!

    Sounds like you need to look into new skin-care / shaving products more than anything! (serious)

    Shaving is the safe way to go, you dont want to miss out on a deal, because a client was put off by the breadcrumbs in your face fuzz.

    The other day I saw a guy with a 5/6-day stubble at an RBS Global Markets AC. He seemed pretty confident in the peer interaction sphere. I wonder if he made it through...
